Chloe Spring/Summer 2010

This season’s Chloe girl is fresh and feminine. She has a boyish yet pretty style and places a keen emphasis on simplicity in her wardrobe. There is a very clean quality to her overall look.

Now that we are in the throes of summer and for once are seeing some sunshine – the Chloe look is perfectly on trend for those craving a cool and relaxed vibe.

Chloe’s influence can be seen all over the high street at present and is ridiculously easy to copy. The Chloe Spring/Summer 2010 collection in Paris was all about beige jackets and shorts, khaki shirts and plenty of chiffon.

Dresses oozed practicalities for both day and night wear and accessories were kept simple with slim belts. There were capes, which are perfect for summer festivals, and lots of sandals – the ideal summer footwear. In fact, you are probably already immersed in Chloe’s influence without even realising.

Cape

If you’re venturing to Oxegen in a few weeks, a cape may be the perfect item to roll up in your bag for the (hopefully not very frequent) showers.

Chloe’s long ones might be hard to pull off for an everyday look but there are plenty of shorter ones around. ASOS have a great selection of capes including the Festival Hooded one for €68.75 which also happens to double up as a handy jacket.

Shorts

This is probably the easiest Chloe look to pull off as shorts are everywhere right now! Hannah MacGibbon (creative director for Chloe) teamed white and khaki shorts with jumpers for a relaxed day time look.

New Look, Dorothy Perkins and Espirit all have a great selection of casual, comfy pairs of shorts starting from as little as €20.

If you want to go the full Chloe hog, try a black leather pair – Topshop have a great look-a-like for £65 but they are almost sold out so hurry! Don’t forget you can always team these with a pair of opaque tights in the winter for a great party outfit too.

White dress

What is more perfect for summer than a floaty white sundress? Mac Gibbon’s Chloe girls wore head to toe white for a fresh, youthful feel. All Saints have a great selection of white dresses, the best being the Mohini, the Lunete and the Nanette styles with prices starting at €100. If you are looking for something more affordable, A Wear also has a good selection of white summer dresses starting at €30.

Belts

The perfect finishing touch to any outfit is a slim, neat belt. Mac Gibbon matched eleven outfits from the collection with belts. That included dresses, tops, trousers, shorts – you name it, there was a belt on it.

Belts are a great way to define your waist and they add a bit of diversity if  you’re wearing all one colour. Promod and Topshop have some classic styles to inject a bit of Chloe into your look.

Chloe Hair and Make-Up

To compliment your fresh Chloe influence, keep your hair and makeup low maintenance. Just run a pump of serum (TreSemme or Charles Worthington are great) through wet hair and let it dry naturally.

A classic day time makeup look that is right on trend everywhere now, is the minimal ‘no makeup’ look.

Keep skin in good condition with a good moisturiser like Clarins HydraQuench (€35) and apply light make up so your skin can breathe, like BareMinerals SPF15 Foundation (€25) or Dior’s Hydra Life Pro Youth Skin Tint (€39).

Complete your look with some subtle mascara and a lip balm. The beauty of being a Chloe girl is looking effortlessly sophisticated – like you just stepped off a Paris high street!
